Why You Should Not Go to Church


I know, what preacher in his right mind would title a post this way, and why even make such a suggestion?!  Well, I am not sure why a preacher in his right mind would do that. However, I  will proceed with a list of why you should not go to church. And I refuse to include, “You can’t go to church because the church is you.”  Wait, I just did.

Do not go to church:

  1. Because others expect you to (parents, spouses, elders, preacher).
  2. Because you like your Bible class teacher.
  3. To see how everyone is dressed.
  4. To sooth your conscience.
  5. To hear the latest gossip.
  6. Because you have the best preacher in town.
  7. To network for business.
  8. Because you think your church is better than the one across town.
  9. For an emotional high brought on by the song service, music, etc.
  10. For a better life.

The following are great reasons to assemble with fellow Christians at every opportunity:

  1. To encourage each other to live for God – Heb 10:24-25.
  2. To worship God, the true audience of our worship – Joh 4:24.
  3. To remember the sacrifice the Christ made for us – Act 20:7
  4. Because of God.

What would you add to either list?
